Mental Health and Wellbeing

Home » Our Curriculum » Mental Health and Wellbeing

At Wybunbury Delves CE Primary School, we are committed to supporting the positive mental health and wellbeing of our whole school community (children, staff, parents and carers). We recognise that mental health and emotional wellbeing is just as important to our lives as physical health.

We are an inclusive school; we welcome and celebrate diversity. High self-esteem is crucial to a child's well-being; our team strives to support all children to meet their potential in our school. Taking a small amount of time out of each day to relax and be mindful can drastically improve our wellbeing.

In school, we have a designator Mental Health First Aider and Lead — Miss Welch

  • Help children to develop and maintain friendships
  • Promote individuality and build self-esteem
  • Help children to develop resilience in the face of adversity

In our school, we aim to:
